Make no mistake, this isn't a mere warning, this is a threat. And one that we will make good on if they fail in their obligations to this country. Term limits, increasing the number of judges, more serious vetting. (Kavanaugh got off easy). We will put cons 'to the question' if need be.

Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction that must be remedied.

 "The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it," the brief said. "Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'"

The last part was quoting language from a Quinnipiac University poll, in which 51 percent favored such restructuring. In the same poll, 55 percent believed the Supreme Court was "motivated by politics" more than by the law.

Dramatic changes to the Supreme Court have been proposed by several Democrats vying for their party's 2020 presidential nomination, with "court-packing" being a common — though highly controversial — suggestion. Increasing the number of justices on the court would allow the president to shift the balance on the bench by loading up justices of his or her preference.

Democratic candidates including former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, and Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, and Gillibrand, all have signaled an openness to expanding the number of judges on the court should they reach the White House.

 Yet other candidates such as former Vice President Joe Biden has come out against court-packing, as has Bernie Sanders, though the Vermont senator has suggested rotating judges to other courts.

Liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has also spoken out against court-packing, telling NPR in July, "Nine seems to be a good number."

The Democratic senators' brief was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the case brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an "industrial-strength influence campaign" to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners.

If the court still decides to hear the case, a ruling against New York City could prevent other cities and states from passing similar gun control laws.

Conservatives currently outnumber liberals on the Supreme Court 5-4, but the past year featured a multitude of cases where conservatives — including President Trump's picks Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — sided with the liberal bloc.

Wow.  An all-out declaration of war against the Republic by the Democrats.

 

The court has already been proven to be mostly a rubber stamp for governmental overreach against the rights of the people; but now that the court might actually rule in favor of a Constitutional right, the Demos are losing their already unhinged minds.

 

Let 'em follow through on their threats.  Civil War is imminent.

We are going to move forward with or without you. You have tried our patience for far too long. The NRA is not only corrupt, but at this point can be viewed as a sponsor of domestic terrorism. Enemy combatants are not entitled to 'rights'. You will move forward or we will grab you by the scruff of the neck and move you forward. It's your choice. (for a limited time only.)

There will be a lot of tears because trying to subvert the constitution AGAIN will very likely lead to civil war.

IF the Dems can win the Senate, they can certainly increase the number of judges however they wish. I doubt they would, because the Repubs would just do it when they gained control. It wouldn't accomplish anything, and SCOTUS will never overturn Roe v Wade, anyway.

 

Given the CRAY-CRAY sh|t that comes out of Tweety's mouth and his Twitter account every 10 minutes, there is virtually nothing any Dem could say that is gonna alarm any sane Voter.

No there won't. When push comes to shove, you nutters will surrender your weapons. Everyone outside of your perverse club is against you. Even world opinion views you as mentally defective primitives. We are shutting your hobby down.

🤣Ya, no. That's not happening. That will NEVER happen in a free society. 

 

You better prepare for your imminent therapy to deal with the fact Americans are given the right to defend themselves.

I do think it's HILARIOUS any chance the Supreme Court may actually back up the constitution, and Democrats lose their shit.😂

 

Shows you what kind of fascist, traitorous pigs the left has become.

WE have tried YOUR patience???  You arrogant, evil, ignorant liar, it is YOU who has tried OUR patience... and we have had ENOUGH.  We who have sworn an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign AND domestic, hereby put you on notice:  YOU are the enemy combatants who no longer deserve rights or freedoms.  Your threats are laughable, and you WILL be held to account.  

 

Live or die, you son of a bytch.... that is YOUR choice.

People act like they don't have to pay taxes, aren't required to have liability insurance to drive, or do anything else that they wouldn't just wake up in the morning and decide all on their own to do.  "You can't take mah assault rifle!  I will never give it up!"  Sure.  Sure you will.  Just as soon as that's what the law says, that's what you'll do.  Just like you can't drive as fast as you want, or build bombs and boobytrap your property, or refuse to pay taxes, etc.  We have rules, and that's not a bad thing.  Without them we would surely not have anything close to the kind of science and technology we have today, medicine, computers, power, weapons, all of it.

Demonrats MIGHT (though I doubt it) be able to get the number of SC justices expanded.  But they probably shouldn't let that be made into even a secondary issue in the coming election.

 

However, they should probably read Article III, Section 1;

 

The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.

 

Notice is clearly mentions supreme and inferior courts and does NOT limit their term.  So any thought of rotating SC justices off or establishing a term of service would require a Constitutional Amendment...and the probability of that happening is 0.0001%.  Federal judges are appointed and confirmed to a particular position in a particular court...not to the generic "federal bench".
